POTENTIAL TextMate Halloween Virus!

Hi all,

Just a warning… Textmate just auto-updated and after I accepted the
update it failed with an odd error message (see attached). I think this
might be a VIRUS. It also replaced the application icon with the same
flaming pumpkin. BEWARE!

I am awaiting confirmation from Textmate support.

Regards,
Jason

Textmate spport says that it is just a “special halloween icon.” Guess
macs don’t “have virus” after all. Whew.

Wow dude, you’re totally right! But hm, macs don’t have virus…

I think it may have just been some holiday fun over at macromates. My
copy of textmate updated the same way so I grabbed a fresh copy off
their website and it was the same.
